Amending the Abject Body: Aesthetic Makeovers in Medicine and Culture

Amending the Abject Body: Aesthetic Makeovers in Medicine and Culture (SUNY series in Feminist Criticism and Theory) by Deborah Caslav Covino
English | Oct. 28, 2004 | ISBN: 0791462323 | 163 Pages | PDF | 1 MB

Examines the implications and meanings of the makeover and aesthetic surgery industry in American popular culture.
Feminist theorists have often argued that aesthetic surgeries and body makeovers dehumanize and disempower women patients, whose efforts at self-improvement lead to their objectification. Amending the Abject Body proposes that although objectification is an important element in this phenomenon, the explosive growth of "makeover culture" can be understood as a process of both abjection (ridding ourselves of the unwanted) and identification (joining the community of what Julia Kristeva calls "clean and proper bodies"). Drawing from the advertisement and advocacy of body makeovers on television, in aesthetic surgery trade books, and in the print and Web-based marketing of face lifts, tummy tucks, and Botox injections, Deborah Caslav Covino articulates the relationship among objectification, abjection, and identification, and offers a fuller understanding of contemporary beauty-desire.

Non-Equilibrium Nano-Physics :A Many-Body Approach

Non-Equilibrium Nano-Physics :A Many-Body Approach by Jonas Fransson
English | PDF,EPUB | 2010 | 230 Pages | ISBN : 9048192099 | 13.26 MB

The aim of this book is to present a formulation of the non-equilibrium physics in nanoscale systems in terms of many-body states and operators and, in addition, discuss a diagrammatic approach to Green functions expressed by many-body states. The intention is not to give an account of strongly correlated systems as such. The focus of this book ensues from the typical questions that arise when addressing nanoscale systems from a practical point of view, e.g. current-voltage asymmetries, negative differential conductance, spin-dependent tunneling. The focus is on nanoscale systems constituted of complexes of subsystems interacting with one another, under non-equilibrium conditions, in which the local properties of the subsystems are preferably being described in terms of its (many-body) eigenstates.

How to Get Pregnant, Even When You've Tried Everything: A Mind-Body Guide to Fertility by A'ndrea Reiter
English | July 8th, 2018 | ISBN: 0738756962 | 192 Pages | EPUB | 1.70 MB

When you've tried everything to get pregnant—from eating the right foods to spending thousands on medical treatments—and nothing's worked, it's hard to stay positive. But this book holds the key to success. The mind-body connection, a vastly under-acknowledged and under-studied area in fertility, has helped many women become pregnant. It can help you, too.
